Today is my brother’s 29th birthday. Yes, this is his very first 29th birthday. I’m sure that there will be more in the coming years. 😉
He’s my one and only blood-related sibling. Though he’s only a year and a half older than me, as a kid he always seemed so much older.
I grew up tagging along behind him and trying to not be a “pesky little sister.” I’m sure he often grew tired of me. We had many adventures growing up out in the country. I have fond memories of making mud pies and bug collecting. Luckily for him I was never a girly girl and I would ride motorcycles with him or go hunting with him. Of course as I got older, I would try to drag him shopping with me but he was never interested. Now that I’m older and married I realize that most men aren’t interested in shopping. Go figure.
Having an older brother is the main reason I wanted to have more than one child. I learned how to share, how to get along, and even how to fight. I often laugh when my kids start bickering in the back seat of the car. I have many memories of Nate and I pestering each other in the backseat. Being the more “mature one” I would often scream “MOM, Nate is hitting me!!!!!”
Nate, I love you more than you know and I’m so glad I’m your little sister.
I hope you have a wonderful birthday!
Nate has a salt water tank and lately he’s taken up photography so he can get good images of his fish and his tank. I have to say that I’m completely impressed with his photos. I’m so proud of my brother the photographer!!!
